A project of the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual celebration not only of spring and beautiful blossoms, but of Japanese culture as well. Each year, over the course of a few weeks, a wide variety of events are planned. From demonstrations of martial arts and ikebana flower arranging to library story hours to live musical and dance performances, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival presents traditional and contemporary Japanese culture to Philadelphia and its visitors.
The Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival began in 1998 and initially focused on the tree planting efforts of the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia. Echoing a sesquicentennial gift of 1,600 flowering trees made by Japan to Philadelphia in 1926, JASGP pledged to plant 1,000 cherry trees in Fairmount Park. This goal was accomplished in 2007, and the mission has been expanded to plant cherry trees in community parks throughout the region.
